‘This is How We Got Here’ was a project undertaken in 2005 that aimed to uncover hidden stories of LGBT+ activism and civil rights history from 1960 to 2000. Throughout the project, personal stories were shared by people who had been active in education, youth work and the Manchester LGBT+ scene during that time. Stories uncovered through the project revealed key moments of personal and collective LGBT+ activism and liberation.
These stories were documented by 51 young researchers aged 14-25 from our LGBT+ youth groups in Stockport, Wythenshawe and Manchester.
The book Prejudice and Pride was written about this project and you can purchase a copy from the LGBT+ Centre or by clicking here.
